, you just don't know any facts. first of all, one little fact, i really wonder whether mr. panetta who talked about the smallest number of ships since 1915, said that in a letter to your former boss, senator mccain, would really be happy to give this argument is ridiculous. wasn't a republican who made that case. it was mr. panetta. number one. number two, the navy is going to be bigger because i funded the ships that are being built. it takes a few years to get them out to see. look at the pattern of naval spending, and the number of ships over the next few years. the air force, rich was very careful to talk about platforms, not aircraft. why? because he's talking about drones. not just planes. you want to watch this very, very carefully. i'm not saying rich wasn't giving you facts. i'm saying that it's a reflection of this administration that when it comes to worst, there's a lot of -- there's an awful lot of fancy footwork. finally, defense going up, it's not going up in real terms. it's going up in nominal terms. big difference. and i come back to the point, why has this administra
